In the mist of the uproar after the state of Georgia changed the rules in the Hope Scholarship funding the Hushmo Black Forum as advocates for social justice from the grassroots level , is weighing in. The NAACP is considering, according to the state president Edward DuBose, a boycott of the state lottery; with the black citizens of Georgia spending more money in support of the lottery than any other segment of the population here in the state. We believe another way of playing the hand in which we've been dealt would be to re-visit an old idea, that is for the city of Atlanta to create an entertainment destination center. This entertainment destination center would include a full-scale casino facilities first-rate entertainment and a lottery. We believe that underground Atlanta along with the Fort McPherson property would be ideal locations for such a venue. The proceeds from such a development would be mandated to go 50% to the school system of the city of Atlanta, 25% t would go to the infrastructure repair of the city of Atlanta and the last 25% would go to economic development in depressed neighborhood in the city of Atlanta. We're going to continue to look at the Hope Scholarship mess and posible solutions. We'll also be covering current events.
